Any...leading Islamic Cleric or Ayatollah issued a condemnation of the London bombing attack? If so, could you please past that link here in this thread for my education and edification? It would useful to know that some condemnation exists... The Pope has spoken out against this...what about his Islamic counterpart? The point is, I am betting, that the silence from the Middle East and Iran and Pakistan, Egypt, etc...will be deafening. There is a saying that "silence" is "acquiescence". The "war on terror" is inappropriately named...what we are really fighting is a war on Islamic fascism, and we need to start saying that. Beyond that, it is hard to see a difference between organized crime and what goes on inside a lot of mosques... It is at these mosques that the planning, aiding and comfort is given to the guys who will carry out these homicide attacks. We have all heard the stories of how Mosques are used to store weapons, ammo and other violations of the norms of international laws governining armed conflict, and yet nothing is ever said by the religious leaders of Islam. If the international community is agreed that religious instituitons are to be entities for peace, someone needs to ask the Islamic Clerics if those rules should apply to them as well?
